The music is moving and majestic, the quality of the recording is superb. If you are curious at all about Mogwai, this is a very good recording to DL!

perfect - this is really as close as I've heard from just about any bootleg. I agree with the above that they could release this, but they should at least point fans to it here on the IA. I'd recommend this to long time fans as well as for those just wanting to discover why Mogwai has the rabid following that they have. I've always had a special love for recorded live shows, and this is a perfect example of why.
From the intro to the chaos of "My Father, My King", this is a glorious piece of music.

Uh, is this even possible?
I listen to more live recordings than studio albums for bands that I listen to most. I must say that this is definitely the best sound quality I've heard on the archive, and if the band or Matador heard this, they must be tempted to release it as an official live boot. Amazing, amazing sound, ridiculously clear and real-sounding. Holy fuck, man. This is a Mogwai fan's dream cum true. And, whoever recorded this caught them on one of the best setlists of the Mr. Beast tour - we have here wonderful versions of "Long Way," "Helicon 1," "Jesus," not to mention MFMK which only appeared on like ten setlists out of 118 on this tour. AN ABSOLUTE GEM. INSURMOUNTABLE IN GREATNESS!!

live album quality
This is a fantastic quality sound. Mogwai could easily use it for a live disc if they so chose, it is that good. Not to mention the quality performance of the band which is awesome! Easily one of the best shows on the archive, a MUST for any fan.

As the other reviewers have said, this is an intense concert recording -- if not the best I've ever heard here on archive.org. The sound is really balanced, and the soundboard + remastering sound crystal clear. Mogwai's performance is wonderful here, and the high sound quality is just icing on the cake. Amazing!!

MY LORD this is a beautiful remaster ... this could pass as a studio album ... i love Mogwai, and this is the best fucking show i've heard posted here. GET THIS if you give a shit about Mogwai at all. After listening ... you sure as hell will.
Thank you to those who made this remaster possible!

Great quality, definitely wortt grabbing.
Track 11, however, is mislabeled. It's 'Travel Is Dangerous', not 'Travels In Constants'.

The sound quality here is phenomenal. I think this is my favorite recording of Helicon 1 I've heard--not to be missed.
